Maybe once I reach at least Tour Legend but ideally Champion, I’ll start messing about on the other formats. Play coin games for sponsors and occasional Turf War to help my club out. We’re only Level 12, so I think we should concentrate on getting Levelled up and attracting some Tour Legends+ (we have none, just 12 Legends, 6 who became Legends as long standing members, which I joined on my 2nd day October 6th, and club started July, both 2020.
Follow up to the last post.
WGT is one of if not the best simulation golf game out there. So do you want to play a version of real golf or do you want to play coin games.
Take the time to learn to play with realistic clubs or play with coin game enhancements. Have enough time to plan your shots or wing it. Earn your way up by scoring low real rounds or don't bother.
If you choose the former it takes a lot of work to get good.
I réalisé the work it takes, but once I learnt what was required and how long it takes, I decided to get to Legend before 94ish, as I was 87mTMaster and had a 64nav alredynwith almost at saturation, already. This will give me the opportunity to give myself time to play with the free ball, and concentrate on striking (or consistently of dinging) and my short game, all in Tournements for the most XP’s (I play 1st round of the day best of Par 5’s with a pass, so I, as well,as my club, get the most. It’s not counted in my age so I play fast with the ‘fast foreward’ button usedmon every shot.
I figure that eventually, we all end up on the back tees, if we play long enough, so get there, then the courses never change and I can learn them all. Some holes are very different.
I managed to get to Legend the day I levelled up,to 90, and only used a few Callaway 33’s and 1 TM 48 (recommendations from a player who qualified for,the Final,10 in the monthly Tour at L98 and a Tour Legend.
He thought similar to me, but recommended thenTM 47 but the 48 has more distance and the other moremspin. Off the backs, I figured distance as the spin with the clubs I’mmgetting, and my wedges, is plenty. (Callaway 97 from 85 Irons. Callaway 67 56° (100yds) and 60° (80 yds) and just bought the Titleist 80 64° replacing my Cleveland L7, rest club but the new one is just superb.
So, I’m using from 90 to 97 to practice asmI said (played 600 RR’s with 18 holes a lot more than 9 holes, just when other players make Tournaments, I play so I’m not just playing my own and filling up the Competition page with too many. Onlyn10- 20 people play, and so most we have up at once is 6-8. Don’t want it to look like I’m using it as my personal practice feature, even that’s what I’mdoing essentially.
So, I know how to get 150cr everyday, I’ve worked out how long it will take me to get to L97 for Driver & Irons, probably L94 Callaway 100 yd wedge. The 60° only goes 75yd so I’ll stick with what I’ve got. Plus a decent cushion formBalls. Prefer TM48 obviously, but 400cr, but Callaway 33 is very good at 250cr. Compared to Titleist, they’re cheap in comparison as Titleist are sold at a premium. Don’t fall into these ‘traps’ is what I’ve learned. Bridgestone are good but duriribility of 1 ( both my Ickes are 2.5, the highest there are...with many others of course).
So, knowing roughly how many days it’s going to take, times by 150 and that’s the credits I’ll have. Enough for the Driver, Irons, Wedge and maybe putter (got L70 Titleist, so either M1 or M2 that’s the same one L98 (I think). From there start playing, mapping my clubs as I won’t be changing them again, except drive (101 Titleist) and 3 wood (99).
But as long as my irons And wedges are known to me and I’m confident of the consequences of dinged as well as misshits are I can play smarter, so my misses don’t put me in impossible positions, I’ll be good to go.
I have 2ntop 10’s and another Top,100’s as a Master, never played comps before then as my first Ranked Round was Marion as a newish Pro thinking it was short, shot 84. So took notice of the green marker in coin rooms, now I know Tourny greens ~75%, Fast ~ right, touch under, slow, smash it. (Championships are not as known, but shot 65 around Chambers on them, so I know I can do it.
That’s the plan, “ until I get punched in the face” as Tyson said quite wisely. But I enjoy it and love a good challenge. Take my mind off other stuff like work...
Sorry about the length but when I write, I’m reinforcing what I need to do OFF the course, so I can concentrate ON the course as I know what to buy and when without thinking about it. It will be so enshrined in my mind, I’ll do it automatically.
Writing it out helps that process. It’s a known way to get things organised in your brain reinforcing it and easier to notice flaws or mistakes.
We’ll get an idea how my strategy works out this time next year.
Thanks for reading (if you’re reading this, I’m presuming you’ve read the whole thing, or at least skimmed through the main points. I’ very tired after 30 rounds and 3rd place in Platinum ll only playing sponsored matches, then, with an hour to go, was 32,000 behind 3rd (1st gets most, then 2nd less, 3rd less, then 4th to 10th get a lot less, all the same. So played a 10k game, plan of I lost, take the 5th, but I won, so had 2 chances for another to get 3rd. Won the 1st try.
So my brain is a bit like this reply...a little discombobulated 😕
